Derby, Looptopia, Horses

May 2, 2008

So like I said below, check out Looptopia but be aware of the weather, don’t take risks.  That said go out and have fun downtown!  The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow and equestrian art is a long standing genre of art so go to the Art Institute, when it’s free after 10 and you are downtown for Looptopia, and find some horse-art.  One of my personal favorite equestrian related artworks is Horse by Raymond Duchamp-Villon (brother to Marcel, they had a very talented family it seems) from 1914/55-57.  Seen below it is located in gallery 232:

I’d love to hear what equestrian art others like.  I want to see some Stubbs people!
